"Muddy Max takes that eternal struggle between kids and parents---whether to play in or stay out of mud puddles---and turns it into an epic tale full of secrets and superpowers and one very important lesson: Don't eat mud. It's earthworm poop."
--Matthew Holm, co-creator of Babymouse and Squish

--Bart King, author of The Big Book of Superheroes and The Big Book of Gross Stuff
